The San Luis Obispo Buzz

Ed Stevens
CEO, Shopatron

We could have chosen to start our business anywhere, but we chose San Luis Obispo in part because of its talented, affordable workforce. Cal Poly and other nearby colleges and universities offer a unique advantage to technical companies like ours, because they produce innovative and exceptional employees. I love Cal Poly's learn by doing philosophy.  Most of our hires hit the ground running, ready to be a productive part of a bigger team.
